Where & When We Teach
STUDIO: in-person lessons
We are back in the studio! Now that COVID restrictions have eased somewhat, we are pleased to announce our return to the studio for in-person lessons. Precautions are still in effect--face masks, hand sanitizing/cleanliness, social distancing, no food / drinks are all necessary to maintain a safe learning environment for all. If you have questions, leave a message in the "Contact Us" section of this web site and we will contact you.
ONLINE: distance learning via Zoom
If you are not quite ready for in-person lessons, we continue to provide distance learning online. Joyful Keys provides online music lessons via Zoom video-conferencing. It is a simple process—all you need is a computer, tablet or phone with a camera that does video. Joyful Keys sends you an e-mail invitation for your lesson--then you log in and you are ready to begin!
Just as in the studio, your lessons take place on your pre-arranged day and time, but in the comfort of your home. Your instructor, Joy, teaches the lessons using her computer and piano. Your device faces your piano so she can watch your keyboard and hands as you play. Joy evaluates how you are performing and advises accordingly—just as she does in the studio. Music lessons online are engaging and effective as well as convenient. If you have questions, leave a message in the "Contact Us" section of this web site and we will contact you.
How We Teach
One-on-one lessons. Each student is an individual. What may be good for one may not work for another. We go at a pace that is comfortable and appropriate for each student—based on age, ability, desire and goals.
Are you learning music for enjoyment? Are you interested in performing? Are you involved in music at school and want to improve skills? Are you interested in music as a career? We will tailor your program to your specific needs.
We teach with universally recognized techniques. This includes learning how to read music, which enables you to advance to higher levels of understanding and performance.
We make it enjoyable. Learning music is an enriching experience—one that has the capacity to enhance your enjoyment of music and quality of life.
